    We’ve been coming for years and this was the first time we were disappointed in everything we ordered and our service. The new arugula salad was a disappointment compared to the old recipe which we loved so much we would come back just for the salad alone. Both of our steaks were extremely fatty almost inedible, the broccolini was nearly raw and cold, and the overall service was just not up to par with previous visits. The zucchini appetizer also changed from crispy rounds to sad thin soggy planks and the portion size was about 2/3 smaller. I’d say that the changes made recently are not for the better and we probably won’t return again, this went from being one of our favorite places to one of the most disappointing meals we’ve had dining out.

    We were bamboozled by the hidden cost of the Valentine’s fixed menu. Very high price for average food, no special atmosphere, and overworked staff. Disappointed also that they brought us Prosecco in plastic and without asking, then charged for those. Saw a mouse in the dining area, too.

    As long as you don't mind a MOUSE under your table! Yes, really! I have to say the food was very good, but everything else left a lot to be desired. We have eaten at most of the finer restaurants in Pittsburgh including the Grand Concourse, Eddie Merlot's, Capital Grille etc. but this was by FAR the most expensive one, and far from the best. The service wasn't particularly quick but we didn't mind that - it gave us chance to talk and enjoy the meal. Other reviews may say it's slow; we certainly didn't feel rushed, but to us it was fine. What we really did not enjoy was the "compulsory" uncharge for two (plastic!) glasses of Prosecco, and the exorbitantly high price for the food. Oh and the mouse running around the floor - that was a big minus! It's a pity - we really wanted to enjoy this restaurant. The setting and decor are lovely, the food was very good, although not up to a par with other, less expensive restaurants, but those prices! (And the mouse!)

    I booked this reservation in early January. Nowhere did it state it was going to be a fixed menu. I saw online yesterday there was an $100/person fixed menu and decided to try it. When we sat down they gave us Prosecco we didn’t order. The food was ok, but bland and when the bill came it was $120/person and we were charged for the Prosecco. This was a favorite special occasion restaurant for us, but I’m definitely never going back.

    By 8pm they run out of lot of items on the menu and the menu is pretty small , so I don’t understand how that could happen. The dishes available took forever to be prepared . Even when the waitress apologized several times , still not acceptable. Very bad experience, we are not going back

    The pepperoni pizza was phenomenal, as was the mushroom. We also had zucchuni appetizer. Highly recommend the Chianti, smooth and full. This is our new go-to for dinner. Great space with lots of brick and wood, huge windows and awesome food. Service from Daisy was top-notch!

    Perhaps it was an off-night, considering prior visits had been quite satisfactory. Service was fine, but zucchini appetizer consisted of burnt chips, and coffee was lukewarm — to name a few issues.

    I was disappointed with the choices on the menu. The pizza was just okay. The prosciutto was overcooked which is really a crime with prosciutto. We were on the second floor. The first floor smells which is NEVER a good sign.

    Mezzo is one of my absolute favorite restaurants in Pittsburgh. The food and service are always top notch. I was disappointed this time because my friend and I were at the restaurant 15 minutes before they opened. Mezzo was wonderful and seated us and we were even able to order a glass of wine. We ordered our food and 50 minutes later we had to ask where it was. Our waitress was wonderful and checked immediately. She brought our meals within minutes. I had the Pork Sugo and at best it was room temperature, the sauce was starting to dry on the pasta. It was very apparent to me that it had been sitting for a while. My friend had the Chicken Risotto (special of the day). She said hers was very hot. We had to eat quickly and missed an engagement we had registered for. Very disappointed!!! I do like Mezzo and woukd go back however this is the 2nd time this has occurred in the past year.

    Went to Sienna Mercato as a family outing. We sat on the second level which is there “mezzo” level. The menu is decent with starters including fried zuchini, charcuterie, hummus, olives, and more. I had the fried zucchini which was served in a little chip dipper style. Different than what I’m used to, but still good. For my entree I had the Funghi pizza and added sausage which the waitress recommended. Definitely a great suggestion. My family all got the same pizza and we loved it.. We definitely would be back.

    I don't ususally write reviews with a negative view but we had a very disappointing experience at Mezzo on Saturday. In the past, we had good dining experiences. First, my friend is waiting for knee surgery and asked at the first floor desk to use the elevator to get to the second floor so thata she didint' have to climb the stairs. She was told that the elevator was locked for the second floor and was permitted to use the access needed on the elevator. This is a blatant violation of access requirements for persons with mobility issues. Second, the wine ofeerings by the glass were limited and expensive (e.g., $18 for a few ounces of chianti). We treid to buy a bottle of red wine and were told that was not available and only the more expensive wines ($75 and up) were available. Third, we ordered an appetizer of beans & greens and after a half-hour asked if it would be coming. We were told that our order had been deliverd to another table and didn't really offer another in a timely manner. Our server did the best she could do given the circumstances but we will never return to Mezzo.

    The Caesar salad and bacon wrapped date appetizer were good. The pizza with basil and sausage was very disappointing. Very little basil and sausage on the pizza and the bottom of the crust was so tough that it couldn't be cut with a knife. Additionally, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust lists this restaurant as one that accepts the Trust's discount card. We tried to use it on the 2nd floor of the restaurant and were told it is only accepted on the 1st floor.
